Pressing 2 linearises the page.
Wii's website is saved as a default bookmark, but it's a really bad experience. Links are tiny and fiddly, horizontal scrolling, slow to load.
When it doesn't like a site, it will start loading it, then go straight back to the home screen without any warning or error message. Google search crashed a few times.

Wii Remote, the main controller for the Wii. Has motion sensing capabilities, infrared sensors, 8 buttons, a D-pad and a speaker. It also has a slot at the bottom for attachments.
Clicking links is fiddly. Doesn't seem to invoke a hover state. Couldn't find a way to do text selection. Drag and drop tests worked (obviously no multitouch).
Remote vibrates when it hovers over a link. Pressing - and + buttons zooms.
Wii Balance Board
Yep, you can surf the web on a Wii balance board.
